Alia Bhatt entered the Hindi film industry with Karan Johar-directed Student Of The Year in 2012. For the initial few years of her career, Alia was largely looked at as a star kid who got an easy break in Bollywood. However, with her hard work and dedication to the craft of acting, Alia proved her mettle and is now hailed as one of the topmost stars in the country.
The 29-year-old actress, who is the only Indian celebrity to deliver three Rs 100 crore films in 2022, has come a long way in her career and has given several memorable performances for cinema buffs to cherish.
Actor Alia Bhatt has been awarded the Priyadarshni Academy Smita Patil Memorial Award for her commendable contribution to Indian cinema at the 38th-anniversary celebrations of the premier non-profit, socio-cultural and educational organization, Priyadarshini Academy. This rare honor is bestowed upon outstanding national and international recipients annually and awards global recognition for their unparalleled excellence and immense contribution to their respective fields. This year, exceptional achievers will be felicitated virtually by Union Ministers, Government of India, at the Academy’s Awards presentation ceremony through a webinar scheduled for September 19, 2022 at 6:00 pm IST.
During the felicitation ceremony that was held through a webinar on Monday, September 19, Alia had said, “I want to thank the Priyadarshni Academy for bestowing me with the Smita Patil Memorial Award for Best Actor. It’s a tremendous honor to be here today, one I’ll cherish for the years to come.”
Meanwhile, Alia is presently basking in the success of Brahmastra, in which she stars alongside her hubby Ranbir Kapoor. The Ayan Mukerji directorial is on a record-breaking spree at the box office and has already crossed Rs 200 crore mark.
Earlier this year, Alia had delivered two bumper hits with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi and SS Rajamouli’s RRR. Her digital release Darlings was also a resounding success.
She will next be seen in Karan’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani with Ranveer Singh.
